Hops - POLARIS Pellets
Occasionally we may need to substitute to 1oz YCH nitrogen purged hops.
Powerful wintergreen and eucalyptus make Polaris a vivid flavour component.
Brewing Application: Aroma. With typically very high alpha acid levels and high oil content, Polaris makes its presence known in IPAs, Brettanomyces fermentations, and Belgian styles. Use a base malt with enough character to stand up to it!
Sensory: Intense and lingering impressions of wintergreen, pleasant fruit notes, with a Hallertau-like sweetness and herbal note. Can exhibit a pungent, exotic spice flavour early in fermentation.
Alpha Acid Range: 18.0-24.0%
